How to protect your patio from grease and wax

Spillages from BBQ’s and dropped candle wax can quickly spoil the look of a new stone patio. So, how can you protect it – and still enjoy the great outdoors this summer?


Fila offers a really useful product called FILAWET which creates a wipe-able surface under BBQ areas, giving to the surface a nice wet-look effect.  All you need to do is:

  1. Thoroughly clean the surface with FILAPS87, the de-greasing stain-remover detergent diluted in water 1:10-1:20.
  2. Apply a coat of FILAWET, using a brush or roller. Make sure that the application is even and continuous for best results!
  3. Wait 24 hours and then apply a second coat. For very absorbent materials, a third coat may be required to reach the
    desired wet effect.

FILAWET advantages:

  • Provides a wet effect that can be intensified with several applications.
  • Does not yellow with ageing or due to any environmental condition.
  • Does not scrape from surface.
  • It’s ideal for unpolished surfaces (tumble finishes, flame finishes, natural sawn finishes).
  • It’s a consolidating effect treatment.
